The 2011 MnQP will be on the air for the full 10 hours, starting at

Check out the MWA web site and select the MnQP menu. www.w0aa.org You
will find an interactive Activity Map that provides APRS tracking, as
well as the mobile routes painted on top of our state map. Counties are
color coded to indicate expected level of activity. Red ones will need
closer attention so you don't miss the opportunity to get it logged.
You will also find a menu of county names and their 3-letter
abbreviations... click one, an information bubble will pop up on to map
to show you where it's located. It will also show you all the mobile,
rover, and fixed stations that will operate there. In addition, you are
going to find their estimated window of activity and what mode(s) to
expect each station to be using.
The MnQP rules encourage you to spot all the MN stations (sorry, no
self-spotting allowed though). It's a PARTY! And parties are supposed to
be fun! We hope you have fun working all of us tomorrow!
